PALM HARBOR, FL - Gary Woodland's only par on the back nine Sunday gave him his first PGA Tour victory.
Woodland surged into the lead with birdies, fell back with consecutive bogeys and won the Transitions Championship with a 10-foot par on the final hole for a 4-under 67 and a one-shot victory over Webb Simpson.
Simpson, playing in the group behind Woodland, was in a similar spot behind the 18th green. His chip went 20 feet by the hole and he failed to make the par putt. He closed with a 69.
Woodland became the first player to earn his first PGA Tour victory at Innisbrook, and it couldn't have come at a better time. The win sends the big-hitter from Kansas to the Masters.
PGA Tour rookie Scott Stallings fell out of the hunt with a double bogey on the 16th, but still finished third.
